I've realized a couple of things recently. One is that we are living a pretty normal life right now. We are truly blessed to have such amazing friends and a supportive community. Cade really wanted to go watch his buddies play basketball last weekend. Their tournament was in Cambridge which is about an hour away. … Continue reading Future Plans
I feel like I have been a little absent from here recently. It seems like this cold weather won't give up and while we have been noticing and enjoying the longer days, the cold makes it a little brutal for Cade to try to help with anything outside. Maybe that is why it seems like … Continue reading Unrelenting!
Last night, the pastor that married Brent and I went to be with Jesus. He was a great family friend, a good cowboy, and a wonderful example of how to live a godly life. This man knew Brent his entire life and I came to know him about 20 years ago. I will still remember … Continue reading Unstandard Measurements

As I was listening to this song the other day, it spoke to me with a renewed passion. The chorus stuck me the most though, and more specifically the first 4 words … Continue reading O Holy Night
This past week has been filled with making candles and looking through the seed catalogs we have received. Tuesday we had my work Christmas party. The boys come along as this is a family event. They do miss Grandma Tuesday but getting to see some friends makes up for it. Wednesday means Sparks for me … Continue reading Candles and Seeds
